Presidential Office Building, Taipei

(3.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Architecture lovers and politics buffs will enjoy seeing Presidential Office Building--the tallest structure in Taiwan at the time of its construction. Completed in 1919, the building initially acted as the seat of the colonial government. After damage sustained in World War II bombings, Chen Yi restored the edifice to its former glory and it later became the presidential office in 1950. Though the structure faces east, giving it excellent views of Shishou Mountain, visitors can only view it from outside. Stop by to admire the historic building and snap a few photos. Use our Taipei family vacation planner to arrange your visit to Presidential Office Building and other attractions in Taipei.

  • 正面面向凱達格蘭大道的總統府,從重慶南路一直横向步行,便能欣賞到它的建築特色。總統府的車路出入處均有嚴密的保安,並且能看到軍車停泊。經過中華民國外交部大樓後,過馬路時便能拍攝總統府的正面。這裏是新聞事件中常出現的場景,值得來這裏看看。

  • This is president's office. It is an old building built in 1919 by Japanese. Sometime it will be open to public during weekend or holidays. Check its schedule on official website for more details. There are photo shoot platforms in front of the building. Go there and you will get a better photo. The building looks different when day and night, and I like it personally when lights on
